I have one of these, awesome for camping, the solar charging feature kinda sucks but you can charge it via usb, lights up the entire campsite at night and you can cleverly rig it to a bear alarm to flash on.

What’s a bear alarm? Like a perimeter fence thing?

Yeah, I camp solo in the backwoods of Grizz country, Montana, BC, and Alaska. So having a clever set up to give you advance warning when its 3am in the morning an a Grizzly the size of a truck wanders into camp is pretty useful.
$20 at Outdoor Emporium in Seattle. Nice product, makes your campsite stand out for finding it in the dark. I suppose it makes it cute, too.
Can these be daisy chained together? I think 2 at the end of a campsite perimeter would be useful
Hello @Massdrop, I’m wondering how long you think this will last being used nightly in tropical conditions? How many metal parts are exposed? I would love to buy this but I don’t want rust to set in immediately and be a waste of money. I could potentially make good use of this item.

https://phiaton.com/ipx4-water-resistance-what-it-means-and-why-you-need-it/ Based on this article, it looks like the entire unit is safe from rain and dust - that includes the USB type-A port, as it is sealed with, what looks to be, a rubber cap. I believe that this rating also applies to the "braided kink-resistant nylon" cord. Assuming it does, then you shouldn't have to worry about rust on any part of the unit, assuming you close the port when it's not in use.

I have one of these and it seems like it would hold up well to moisture. Not sure about a downpour, but the parts seem well sealed. My biggest concern would be the USB plug at the very end of the string (used to charge the unit). It’s metal contacts are exposed and might oxidize if exposed to a marine environment, for example. But that would be true of any USB plug. The advantage of this one is that it doesn’t have a metal shroud around it to rust.
